Kendrick will not return to the mound for Thursday's game after a lengthy rain delay. He threw one scoreless inning with one hit on eight pitches in the outing.

A rain delay lasting over two hours ended Kendrick's night prematurely on Thursday as he was replaced by David Hale on the bump. There is no word at this point on when Kendrick will take the hill again.

Kendrick was touched up for three runs on nine hits over 5.2 innings on Friday against the Diamondbacks, but didn't factor into the decision. He struck out six, hit one batter with a pitch, and walked none.

The outing represented one of Kendrick's better efforts of the season, but the fact that he couldn't even meet the criteria for a quality start illustrates just how porous he's been this season. It's not just a product of pitching at Coors Field, either -- Kendrick is 2-6 with a 5.52 ERA and a .284 batting average against over 10 road starts.

Kendrick was handed his 10th loss of the season Sunday, allowing five runs on eight hits across 5.2 innings against the Giants.

The 30-year-old was in decent shape heading into the sixth inning, but he proceeded to allowed a pair of home runs and was pulled from the game before finishing out the frame. It has been a rough season for Kendrick to say the least, as he has a 6.07 ERA to go along with his 3-10 record, and he will draw a tough matchup at Arizona in his next start Friday.

Kendrick improved to 3-9 Tuesday against Arizona as he allowed four runs on eight hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out three.

Kendrick allowed three home runs and has now has allowed four more home runs than any other major league pitcher. Kendrick's ERA rose to 5.96 in the victory and his FIP is an even uglier 6.30.

Kendrick (2-9) gave up seven hits, three walks and four runs while striking out one in five innings against the Astros on Wednesday.

With Thursday's loss, Kendricks fell to 0-4 in six Coors Field starts. After starting the season off with a win, Kendricks has only won once in his past 13 starts. He'll look to snap out of this funk in his next scheduled start Tuesday against Arizona.

Kendrick allowed two runs on seven hits, walking two and striking out four, but was a hard-luck loser as the Rockies fell to Miami 5-1 Friday night.

That's two solid outings against the Marlins in his last two starts, but Kendrick (2-8, 5.87) remains a very risky play at best in any fantasy format.

Kendrick pitched well Sunday against the Marlins, allowing two runs through seven innings with four strikeouts and one walk.

It was a nice rebound performance for the 30-year-old after allowing four or more runs in his previous three starts, and he nearly had a chance to earn the win as Colorado made a late push to tie the game. Kendrick has been very unreliable this season, as his 6.16 ERA will show, and is not a desirable fantasy option at the moment. He will face this same Marlins team Friday on the road.

Kendrick (2-7) gave up six runs (five earned) on 10 hits and a pair of walks while striking out just one in 5.1 innings Monday against the Dodgers.

At this point, it's a surprise when Kendrick doesn't get bombed. In 11 starts this year, he's given up four or more earned runs eight times. The 30-year-old righty is lined up to start against Miami on Saturday, but the Rockies have to be looking for alternatives in the rotation sooner or later.

Kendrick (2-6) picked up a rare win Wednesday despite allowing four runs over 7.1 innings against the Reds. He struck out one and walked one.

Kendrick actually had a good stat line going -- one run in seven innings -- until he let the Reds rally against him in the eighth. Clearly, manager Walt Weiss should have known to quit while he was ahead with Kendrick, considering the righty hadn't gone more than seven innings in a start all year long. He'll get the Dodgers on Monday.

Kendrick saw his season record drop to 1-6 Friday against the Giants, after he gave up four runs on five hits and three walks over 6.1 innings.

Kendrick has done well to work deeper into games his last three times out, and even though he's generally been able to avoid further damage to his ERA, the overall results are uninspiring. The right-hander's pitch-to-contact approach has unsurprisingly kept his strikeout rate at a meager 12.7 percent, which hasn't lent itself to much fantasy utility. Even in NL-only leagues, it's probably wise at this point to keep Kendrick on the bench during weeks he has a start at Coors Field lined up.
